Radon Testing in Cherry Creek CO
What is Radon?
Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is well known to instigate lung cancer in people.
38%+ of properties in the Cherry Creek CO area have a radon gas saturation higher than the actionable amount.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Every house meshes with the topsoil differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to each other have dramatically different radon accumulation.
Radon gas levels will fluctuate on different days and with the seasons inside a safe range. A quick radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a dependable indicator of if the home has a radon saturation.
Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means radon accumulation will not be any higher if the property is closed for years, months, or days.
No home is airtight.
Gaseous contaminants can infiltrate through each grounded vent in the structure such as drains, utility connections, and slight gaps in the concrete foundation.
Your method to know confidently the accumulation of radon in the house is to run a radon test.
Measuring a dwelling for radon gas is an important service when offered as a part of a house sale.
Our radon gas specialist will position the radon monitors in the home. Radon probes will be installed on any level that touches the ground. Typically multiple probes are located in the property for the radon analysis.
Your radon technician will seal every window and door, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the air conditioning is running in the required manner.
Your radon professional will also mark every required window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed home conditions are met.
The radon gas probes remain in the house for two or three days recording the saturation of radon gas in the house. A professional will come back to the property once the radon test is complete to remove the analyzers and create a report.
